The center of all congregational life is worship. It’s the most ideal opportunity for God’s people to
join together in spiritual growth from the gospel, in praise to our Savior in prayer and song, and
in encouragement to one another by word and action. We have a single service on Sunday
mornings, beginning at 10:30 am. Sometimes our service will focus on a particular theme
(Friendship Sunday; Education Sunday; Evangelism Sunday; Mission Festival; Stewardship
Sundays; etc.). We also gather together on special occasions throughout the year…
Midweek Lenten / Maundy Thursday / Good Friday Worship
Easter Sunrise Worship (in addition to the regular service)
Thanksgiving Eve Worship
Midweek Advent Worship (Wednesday after Thanksgiving)
Children’s Christmas Worship
Christmas Eve Candlelight Worship
Christmas Morning Worship
New Year’s Eve Worship (w/ Communion)
Occasionally we have people ask about a nursery for children during the worship service. While
we don’t provide a staffed nursery (the pastor or elders will be able to explain the rationale), the
fellowship hall is equipped with an audio / visual feed of the service if you need to take your child
out to calm him or her down.
Adult Bible Classes
We currently offer three weekly adult Bible studies. Sunday morning’s class begins at 9:00 am.
The class on Tuesday mornings starts at 9:30 am. And the Monday evening class is at 7:00 pm.
Keep your eyes and ears open for the current or upcoming topics.
We offer classes from birth through adult. The hour begins with a joint opening devotion at 9:00
am and then the classes split up by age. For the youth classes, we follow the WELS produced
Our teachers currently rotate in and out on a quarterly basis, If you’re interested in serving as a
teacher, please see the Sunday School chairman.
VBS / Christmas for Kids / Easter for Kids
Our week-long Vacation Bible School is usually held in early June. We have classes for age
three through eighth grade. We also have single-day Bible schools a week or two before
Christmas and Easter for the same age groups.
UTA Campus Ministry
Initiated as an outreach program, we meet weekly during the school year for an on-campus
dinner and Bible study, normally on Tuesday evenings at 6:00 pm.
Our goal is to provide opportunities for members to get together and do something every month.
Activities range from game or movie nights at the church to blasting away at clay pigeons on the
trap range. Ice cream socials, rodeos, mini golf, bowling and Ranger games are some of the
things that fall somewhere in between.
We meet at a local restaurant on the first Saturday of the month for a devotion, fellowship and –
of course – breakfast.
Mary-Martha provides our women with opportunities for service to the congregation. Any
confirmed woman is eligible to attend the meetings on the first Sunday of each month.
Our congregation “adopts” a student or two at Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary. The Mary-Martha
group coordinates sending gifts and care packages to them at various times throughout the year.
Our Savior is a member of the Red River Circuit of the Lutheran Women’s Missionary Society.
Spring and fall rallies are held at local congregations, as well as a national rally. Guest speakers
at those rallies remind us of the importance of supporting WELS home and world missionaries of
the gospel with our prayers, offerings, and letters of encouragement. The women conduct a
business meeting at the rallies, but both men and women are encouraged to attend the seminar
The congregation provides a food pantry for those of our community who are in need of
assistance. Members may drop off non-perishable food or personal care items (baby diapers,
samples of shampoo, etc.) in the basket in the church entryway. It’s also been suggested that
you might donate gift cards to local grocery stores (Kroger, Albertson’s, Tom Thumb) in $10
increments for meat and dairy products.
